@manolito Wow! That 2 Pass with HCencVBR you suggested is right on the money! I knew that something had to give because when I use DVD-RB Pro, it uses the HCenc and the results are immaculate. Thanks again. I'll maybe take a look at that Tiny player just for kicks. For the preview to work natively from the app, ffdshow has to be installed, otherwise you have to set it to use an external player.

from reading, avs2dvd does not encode to DTS format only ac-3 wav and mp2 I guess this is due to licencing issues with DTS labs

it also seems DTS source audio tracks need to be 20bit or lower to be direct copied by avs2dvd, this apparently is a muxman problem ? , id guess Blu-ray source files are 24bit DTS audio, as is your MKV so will need re encoding

as quoted by Mrc, Many (I would say all) 24bit DTS tracks are refused by muxman. Sometimes it refuses 20bit tracks as well... hence the DTS compliance is not 100% solved. (wheter this is still relevant im not sure)

so I guess your options are, AC-3, or find a way of re encoding your DTS audio tracks to 20bit and hopfully avs2dvd will direct copy, and hopefully muxman will accept it

and do you really need DTS on a DVD ???, AC-3 is almost on par

on a Blu ray, yes I understand, superior picture and audio DTS-HD and master, im guessing DTS will take up more space leaving a lot less space for the video on a dvd ?, considering your compressing video from a already compressed video at only 3 gig to start with for 1hr+ of footage the sorce is prob not the best to start with

Totally agreed...

Also keep in mind that DTS audio is not a mandatory format for DVDs, it is only optional. There are tons of standalone DVD players out there without a built-in DTS decoder. A DVD with only a DTS audio track without also having one of the mandatory audio formats is NOT DVD compliant.

Hi manolito I have a question. I've been getting the warning "A file with AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) audio stream has been added, and default audio codec is Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio decoder". I haven't changed anything with regards to my LAV filters so unless Windows did this on its own I have no idea where this is coming from. Anyway the DVD came out just fine. I did go and use the tool to have LAV filters as default. Should I change the Avisynth tab settings in preferences and set video and audio source filters to FFMpegSource? Thanks.

Are you using Win10?
The only reason I can think of that your DS Filter Settings change by itself is that Win10 updates change these filter settings back to the original Windows filters.

If using the Microsoft DTV-DVD Audio decoder gives you good results (check for Audio/Video sync problems) then of course you can use these filters. Or rerun the Filter Tweaker tool after each Windows update.

Ditching DirectShow altogether and using FFmpegSource as your source filters is an alternative. The only drawback is that the source files need to be indexed which can take some time for longer sources.

Yes you were correct. It was an update after which the settings were changed. Everything's fine now. Thanks. Running the Filter Tweaker Tool doesn't automatically change everything to LAV Filters. You have to make the changes yourself for each item.

Guys, back in business... after some time I finally decided that 2.8.9 must have a final build. So... here you are a new alpha

AVStoDVD 289 Alpha 200925 @ SourceForge

Cumulative changes log from release 2.8.8. Changes from latest alpha are marked with +.

- Added support to PGS BluRay subtitles
- Added handling and display of MediaInfo BitDepth video tag
+ Added support to 7 and 8 channels audio source (Downmix.avsi script file updated, thanks to Manolito)
+ Added Chapters section to Demux File tool
- Improved Muxing routine: better errors handling and switch to FFmpeg (instead of Mplex) when no audio source is present
- Improved usage of FFMS2: now YV12 colorspace is always specified (A2DSource external AviSynth function updated as well)
- Improved AviSynth program info retrieving routine (now using AVSMeter)
+ Improved Seek Chapters routine (new "aggressive" mode added, original mode is now called "mild" mode)
- LAV Filters updated to release 0.74.1

My pleasure...

Finished my tests with this new build, not much to report:

A very very small correction to the German language file:
Quote:
104087 SSA/ASS Untertitel in SRT konvertieren
Just cosmetic, brings it more in line with other translated lines.


The addition of the new audio downmix functions works well.

I noticed that you overhauled the menu highlight colors. Also no problems, the only thing is for folks who overinstall the new build over an older build will have to reselect the hightlight colors to get the colors they want.

As usual I did not test the new subtitle features, this should be tested by users who actually use subs.

My tests were under WinXP and Win7 - 64bit, Win10 users should make their own tests.


There were reports by Win10 users that the preview did not work for them. I cannot reproduce this.
Another Win10 related issue seems to be that Win10 updates can sometimes reset the preferred DS filters to the original MS DMO filters.


If you intend to release a last and final stable version of AVStoDVD there are a couple of considerations how you could harden it for the future. The DVD specs are static, only new source file formats may cause problems. The source filters should handle new formats, the problem I see is with MediaInfo. The current MediaInfo versions do not work with A2D since Zenitram changed the output format. But even if you made A2D compatible with current MediaInfo versions (which would mean a lot of work) there could still be problems in the future. Right now there are already issues with multichannel audio. There are many different 8-ch audio formats, and MediaInfo reports very different output for the number of channels. Sometimes A2D interprets such MediaInfo output as 0 channels. The workaround is to play the source file with a DS based player and check the LAV audio status tab which reports the number of channels which LAV sees. Then the user can manually change the number of audio input channels in A2D.

Of course Win10 updates are another threat for the future stability of A2D, but there is nothing you can do about it.


Whatever, as far as I am concerned this new build is ready to go stable...


Cheers
